    Taken as a fill-in issue then this isn't half bad, as it offers up a complete story, and there's some fairly interesting ideas to be found in these pages. However, the issue has a rushed feel to it that left me wishing that Christopher Priest had another issue to play out this story, as most of the ideas are only half formed and the plot advances from point A to point B far too quickly. There's also the lack of attention given to its cast, as aside from the rather unique poetry/rap that details his internal thoughts, this book's lead character is a bit of a nonentity, and the adventure that he becomes involved in isn't nearly as interesting as it needed to be for me to overlook this lack of character development. Still the issue does a pretty good job of making the reader question whether this is the real Thor, or if the theory offered up by the doctor is the truth, and the ending leaves it up to the reader to decide which story they believe is the true.
